Subject: The kid who just said "no" to the pledge.

Why don't they see that if we had gone state to state with the vote on integration African Americans would still not be voting in the south? A state to state vote on gay rights is not democracy. On CNN, they suggested to the kid that because every where equal rights for gays had been put to the vote it had been voted down was democracy in action. Bull-crap. Exceptions are not allowed in the Constitution unless it affects innocent people like with murder or theft. Prohibition didn't work and drinking gets more innocent people killed than any other supposed sin other than war. They are trying to do it with smoking which also kills. Now they are trying it with gluttony. The sins they really need to work on are greed, bearing false witness and self-righteousness.

Subject: Blanche Lincoln

Senator Lincoln,

Today, on several stations, heard your remark about not being bullied by liberals or conservatives with their money threats.

I just called your office and left a message. I understand how you feel, completely, every time I think of one Senator, from a small state holding everyone else hostage to her own self-interests.

Don't go feeling alone because I feel exactly the same way about the other 3 Senators doing the same thing, except Lieberman and I hope there is a special place in Antarctica or outer Mongolia for him.

I have an extreme amount of disdain and genuine disgust for Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, my home state. I have so much of a dislike for him and his obstructionist beliefs that if I get any money or raise any money I will never again donate to the Oklahoma Democratic Party. I will donate directly to candidates.

How do I feel about you and your Blue Dog friends blocking a public option? Wait, I have to go throw up my lunch because you guys make me physically ill. I have so many family members, including my daughter, with no, zero, zilch health care and you guys do not want anything that doesn't benefit Big Health Care companies.

We will be forced to buy insurance from the same companies that have been taking all of us to the cleaners.

If I could, I would send you a barf bag full of what I think about you and your effort at extortion.

P.S. I don't know if she will accept e-mail from outside her state so someone from Arkansas please make sure she gets this. I think they should accept all communication unless whatever they are doing only applies to their own state or district, which is never the case.

Subject: harry reid

Hi, Buzz!!

Is it just me, or is Sen. Harry Reid giving away the store on health-insurance reform? Every time I see the news, he's made another concession to some holdout Democrat who wants something removed (it's almost always something removed) from the bill.

What would Republicans do if a few of them were trying to blackmail the leadership this way? They would immediately threaten the recalcitrant Repubs with primary challengers in the next election cycle.

Much as I hate Republicans and all their works and pomps, I think this is a time when such measures are called for.

What is Harry Reid THINKING???!

Subject: No shame

Republicans have no shame! Their vision is blurred by so much hatred, their thinking is tarnished. They have a burning hole where the heart should be,their stomachs are full of bitter bile by the mere mention of President Obama or the Democratic party, progressive and liberal. Their skin torments them with the promise to peel away the rotten desire that holds them captive with the cruel agony of defeat! The God they profess to love they hide from Him in order to serve another more powerful in their demented minds. The one God let his powers withstand even as he was casted out of heaven into hell.The Demon himself!

Yet these same people will disrespect President Obama and loudly pray for his death. They had better start questioning themselves as to why they feel the way they do, without love for their fellow man, and want to put another man on the cross, hoping that will ease their pain. This is the Demon speaking through them, and they do not know it because He has taken a complete hold of them so it will take a wealth of asking for forgiveness from the real God of Mercy to cast their demon into the hell he belongs. What other reason would these seemingly sane people stick together so strongly as to block all light out of their thinking? Why do they hide in the darkness of their minds and wallow in this hate that they feel?

God is love, and when love is given to least of us this God receives love. With the Republicans this is not happening, so the other option is to serve the minister of hate who comes from hell. Awaken and see the light or be doomed to darkness forever, Republicans. Ted Kennedy is watching, believe it, and his heart is sore when he sees those who called him friend turn their backs on those who need care, those he fought for all his life. How important it was that these friends do their duty to make his dream come true. So far the Demon is winning their minds and the Republicans remain one solid block of pure darkness. The sad part of hate is that it is so easy to catch and spread around. We are seeing it now up close and personal. It's not called crazy, call it what it is,denying God and accepting the One of darkness.

God Bless President Obama, God Bless America.

Subject: President Obama vs airhead Palin

Can you believe it? Sarah Palin is all over the news selling her not to be believed book, and Our President doing peace making in Asia hardly a blip on the radar. Where was he shown with the troops, honoring him as he honors them? Where? Oh, but Foux Noise made fun of him 24/7 as he payed respect to the leader who hosted his visit. Helping right along are the silly talking heads, as Limbaugh, crazy Beck and their crew of republican misfits. Is this all they have? Yep! Rupert Murdock backs those who are not worthy to walk in our Presidents shoes, and mimics everything hateful they spew about our President.

Yet Sarah the bimbo, they spout as their canidate for President. Are they for real? Yes they are,because the Republicans latch onto anyone they can, who can make outrages statements about President Obama, and at this time Palin is the name of the game. Will the Republicans ever come out of their evil fantasy world? Not in our lifetime. Fantasy is their comfort zone. President Obama is the adult, that these bullys, called Republicans have to bring him down. They have nothing else to offer the American people but smoke and mirrors.

Subject: Help Wanted!!

Dear BuzzFlash:

The job may be a temporary one, but being close to Christmas, some enterprising readers may wish to offer their services to the millions of morons who will buy Sarah Palin's book. The job? Reading it to them, of course. Anybody dumb enough to make this maniacal women even richer and more prominent on the national scene surely has very poor reading skills. For their sake, maybe a pop-up picture book should come with the original. For a modest fee, I will read the book to a Limbaugh Lemming. Since I will have to be interrupted many times during the reading to spell out something to the listener (such as "Where's Alaska?") I will take some literary license and ad lib a few portions of the book and make it really interesting. They will of course believe every word and I will be hospitalized for seizures from uncontrollable laughing. And I haven't even told you what the fee is.

Subject: Palin on the attack

Dear BuzzFlash:

Northwest Arkansas is all in a dither (the right wingnuts and evangelical beasties, that is) over the impending stop at a local Sam's Club store in Fayetteville by the Divine Sarah Palin herself. This is not good. Having established itself as reliable GOP territory, the Bible Belt, especially the Armageddonist faction, which I think is probably about 98% of all "Christians" around here, is drooling over the possibility of a Palin presidency. That's scary for so many reasons, including:

Incompetence: of course, that never stopped George W. from starting two unwinnable wars. Locals here still hero worship him. Palin has been touting the death scenario concerning health care, eagerly poisoning already susceptible minds, not to mention a myriad of total ignorance on just about every topic that doesn't involve moose.

Armageddonist: This is what is really frightening. Palin is among those types who, in their fervor for the final tribulation, will gladly try to make the events happen on their own just to prove themselves right. A full scale Mideast war that would entail far more than just Iraq would be an inevitability. Of course, her type will hide out safely stateside while we practically wipe out an entire generation of young men should she get her way.

Theocracy: There are millions of evangelicals out there including a faction in D.C. whom, should Palin get in the White House, would do everything they could to establish a national religion and make it compulsory. That would of course wipe out the 1st Amendment and those of us who don't supplicate willingly would have to do so under threat of imprisonment. These loonies are very dangerous, every bit as poisoned as the Taliban, and restrained only because of the 1st Amendment.

Sarah Palin is hot right now. Of course GOP men drool over her, but her being hot is also akin to Three Mile Island style hot. The gullible Limbaugh Lemmings here are not capable of free thought, not that they'd ever exercise it anyway, and they're prime agents for a country that would literally go off the deep end should Palin, Michelle Bachmann or Tom Coburn ever set foot in the White House. Bush Jr. only pretended to be a religious guy - he was all about oil and war. Palin would be much more dangerous, if that can be imagined. 2012 could indeed be a global catastrophe, but it would explode on Election Day rather than Dec. 21.

Subject: McCain Has No Clue About Retired People's Medical Expenses

Hi BuzzFlash,

What a joke. McCain is telling AARP Members to cut up their membership cards and send them back to AARP, because AARP had the audacity to support President Obama's Health Care Legislation.

McCain urges town hall attendees to cut up their AARP membership cards. http://thinkprogress.org/2009/11/15/mccain-aarp-cards/

Well, since McCain is "rolling in the dough", to the point that he couldn't even remember how many houses he had during the last campaign; may I suggest that everyone who is a member of AARP and uses them as a Secondary Insurer for their Medicare Bills, simply forward all their medical bills to the McCain Residence.

I'm sure McCain will be "Just As Bold" in telling current AARP Members that they HE WILL PAY for any unpaid portion of their Medicare Bills.

Happy Check Writing Johnny!! Oh, by the way Johnny, does your mother know about your "well thought out" Plan?

And this clown wanted to be President? He still doesn't have a clue!!!

Subject: Terrorist Defined

There is a widening wave of identifying Major Hasan as a "terrorist." But, how do they know that beyond a shadow of a doubt? What are the defining characteristics between a murderer and a terrorist? Who, When, and Why are they applied? I don't recall anyone ever applying the term terrorist to the Columbine shooters, and yet what they did terrorized a large group of people and killed many. But they are not terrorists? How about the DC Sniper? The Ohio sniper? The guy that went back to his office (former) in Florida and killed? I can go on and on and rarely are people referred to as terrorists.

Even Timothy McVeigh was rarely identified as a terrorist. Why? Has terrorist become synonymous with a person of Muslim faith who murders? Is it because Major Hasan is in the U.S. military and is Muslim and became a mass murderer that he is identified as a terrorist? But there have been a number of cases of military members killing their own. In times of war commanders have been killed by those they command. Is it because Major Hasan contacted radical elements of the Muslim faith that identifies him as a terrorist? Do then Christians who listen to John Hagee then become identified as terrorists when they commit acts of violence? Why is it not possible that when Major Hasan made several failed attempts to leave the military, and listening to the stories of the horrors of war, that he did not just slide into mental illness? It seems those that are quick to label do so for nefarious reasons. Who is rushing to label? Those on the right of course and those who claim to be liberal not wanting to give up on spook politics. Why? It is politically savy as they see it to scare Americans, to lie, cheat, steal, and deceive their way back into relevance.

Let's face it Joe Lieberman who is doing his absolute best to misrepresent Connecticut and deny Americans healthcare, can still scare us. I believe Lieber is German for lover, thus his past is filled with lover men, or the lover of men, which of course explains that extraordinarly large mouth. When do they make such claims? When they think it brings about a political advantage.

Their prupose is not the protection of America, if that were the case they would be demanding that Dick Cheney be placed in prison for committing treason. No they want to tie President Obama to terrorists and how we are less safe and remember above all else to run for your fucking life. It seems to me there about 20,000 acts of terrorism each year in the United States, and what we should do is bring about change that truly makes us safer. Finally, glad the fat head left CNN. He will of course show up on FOX, which is where he belongs. Just like Joe Loverman belongs to the Republican Party.
